"Growing Pains" (1997/08/02) from Thunderbolts 5 (August 1997)
Reader Rating: Above Average
Roll Call: Atlas, Citizen V (Zemo), Jolt, MACH-1, Meteorite (Moonstone), Songbird, Techno
Summary: Baron Von Strucker seeks to shut down the Bolts by throwing the Growing Man at them.
Continuity: A couple of plot threads are set up that, due to the upcoming premature exposure of the Big Con, will never be paid off. More info about the Growing Man will be revealed in "In the Courts of Kosmos!" ( 1998/04/01) and "Avengers Forever" ( 1998/12/01). Dallas and Erik have a date. Dallas mentions that her family, "all badges," were disgusted by her quitting the police force, where she was "tops in marksmanship and tops in unarmed combat", to go to work for the Mayor.
Comments: Lots of great backstage action: Karla and Hallie bonding, Erik and Dallas dating, Abe and Melissa sight-seeing, and Norbert playing poker.
